Dacite Super Loop - A Gross Mislabel?

Post by SAMBA » Mar 29 2019 7:24 pm

I'm a big advocate for "truth in labeling", and the Dacite Super Loop don't. In Mnot-soHO, a hike should do as the title implies. Neither the Official Route nor the ten Alternatives that are posted loop Dacite Mesa. Some go through the mesa, some go around, but none loop the mesa. What I envision is a route through DM, follows along the base of DM to Robbers Roost, and then continues on around DM back to the staring point. A REAL Dacite Super Loop. I've done the hike I described as a combination of a few hikes, but never as a REAL DSL. Me thinks it would be great fun, but I was surprised that my cursory searches came up empty for "New Triplogs" or a "New Photosets" or new routes similar to that I described. Come on guys, the clock is ticking for a post of the REAL Dacite Super Loop.

@SAMBA
By all means, feel free to hike it as you would describe the hike, post the GPS route and hopefully you will have solved the issue to your satisfaction...

Maybe it should Be Labeled "Dacite cliffs west of the Peralta Trail Head and southeast east of Superstition Peak Super Loop". Not sure what the limit Joe has on letters for a description title.

Or as I'm wont to say DCWotPTHaSEoSPSL. In addition, that should easily adhere to any description title letter limit Joe might impose.

The distinguished loop around Dacite Mesa is super and a hit in naming circles throughput the galaxy.

If one chooses to engage within [ Dacite Mesa ] and [ Robbers Roost - Superstitions ] offer a quaint symphony of pizzazz.

@joebartels
I'm still trying to figure out what was wrong with the title the way it was. If I'm confused by a title at all, I check out the route.
